6:15am
pope benedict will have no role in picking his successor. cate caugiran, kpix 5. take a look a bourbon street. crowds were smaller but the party went on for hours in new orleans. even the gloomy forecast and occasional showers did not stop all the party-goers. police following tradition at the stroke of midnight clearing the streets to mark the start of lent but as soon as they were gone the partiers were back. >> i don't think it stops. >> i don't think it does. >> july, august, september. >> it's ash wednesday so they have to go easy. >> yeah. we have lent. how about some traffic? >> it's been a crazy busy morning. we keep getting new accidents coming in. one of our traffic alerts has been canceled. we had two separate ones this morning. we still have one in effect. we are just getting word of this new problem spot. this is in daly city. they are closing a ramp from northbound highway 35 to northbound highway 1. it's because of a solo vehicle crash hit the guardrail in that area.

kpix 5. chp officers are at a santa clara home this morning after the bomb squad detonated a device in the front yard last night. kcbs radio's matt bigler is at the scene with the latest. >> reporter: frank, there's still a lot of evidence of this explosion in the front yard of this house. check it out. sandbags that were surrounding a hole that was dug by the bomb squad to explode this bomb- making material or chemicals that could be used to make a bomb. and that explosion distributed those sandbags across the front yard. here's what we know about how this all started. the chp served a search warrant at this house on humboldt in santa clara. they came across a homemade bomb or bomb-making material, something like that. they called in the bomb squad and conducted this operation. neighbors we talked to this morning said it wasn't a very loud explosion. in fact they didn't hear a secondary explosion which may tell you something about just how volatile this material was. all we know about the suspect
6:36am
ises he has been identified as 45-year-old everett basham and apparentlily allegedly made a threat against a public official and led the chp to conduct this investigation at this address. he has been detain. the chp is on the scene investigating. unusual is the chp doing the investigation. we hope to learn more about about that this morning. >> thank you, matt bigler. time now 6:37. >> is it 637 already? >> it is. >> flying by. >> it's flying by when you're having fun. >> it does. we have some great weather coming our way. a little fog out there now. but i think we are going to clean up as we head into the middle of the day and the afternoon. a lot of sunshine coming your way and these temperatures are going to be running above average. you can see the gray skies extended over the bay bridge right now. but won't be long we'll see plenty of blue there and temperatures going to be warming up nicely cool though in spots already. 34 in santa rosa with patchy
6:37am
fog, 37 concord, 46 in oakland and 46 in san francisco. high pressure though in control and will continue to build in. the next couple of days a weak offshore wind develops enough to crank up these temperatures well above average. chance for rain next tuesday, elizabeth, could make things it cooing. >> very interesting. that's right. on the roads, as well. in the meantime we have had an interesting morning so far. fortunately both traffic alerts are now canceled. so all lanes are back open southbound 101 at cesar chavez. and traffic recovered. everything is okay on 101 and 280 out of san francisco. for a while one lane was block. so all lanes are open as well southbound 680 through sunol approaching calaveras. we are still seeing brake lights as you can tell as far back as 580 in pleasanton.
6:38am

6:56am
and one of the search teams raced past us and we followed them. only when we rolled up on the scene and they jumped out and started firing that we really knew what we had rolled up on. >> i hear some screaming -- [ gunfire ] >> reporter: authorities told us it stay low for our safety. moments ago we were caught in the middle of this gunfire between christopher dorner and authorities. we are told that two deputies have been hit by gunfire. their condition is unknown. you can see police and the s.w.a.t. team just a little bit down the road. they have dorner cornered in a cabin. >> the initial video was your cell phone, is that right? and were you worried about your safety? >> reporter: yeah, we were shooting with a cell phone and camera. there was a mix of the two video. but we were worried about our
6:57am
safety, certainly. we were trying to find a position that was going to be safe from any high caliber bullets. it was reported that he had a .50-caliber weapon with him. and a car door is going to do nothing against a bullet of that caliber so we were trying to get down behind the wheels and engine block and sheriff's deputies instructed us to move back providing cover for us as we fell back a little bit. now, i can give you an up date. this morning, authorities are reporting that inside the burnt- out cabin, they have found a driver's license with the name, christopher dorner on it. of course, they are not going to have positive identification until the coroner consults all his tests. but that's about as good as you can get right now without the positive id from the coroner. >> you were out there yesterday, now you're out there this morning. what is the mood like quickly? we imagine there is a sigh of relief for law enforcement but it's also somber because they lost some of their own. >> reporter: yeah. it was a tragic situation.
6:58am
the mood was tense. but it did begin to calm as the cabin burned and you got the sensor of relief. you could feel it from the officers out there. they they felt like they could stand down and were safer. >> carter evans, thank you, great work yesterday and this morning. thanks for joining us live from big bear. >> we are going to continue to follow this story and you can keep updated on our website, cbssf.com. have a great morning. captions by: caption colorado comments@captioncolorado.com captioning funded by cbs good morning to our viewers in the west. it is wednesday, february 13th, 2013. welcome to "cbs this morning." fire fight in the mountains, only on "cbs this morning," video from inside the deadly shoot-out with fugitive christopher dorner. we'll talk to a reporter carter evans, trapped in the gunfire. marco rubio, paul ryan and
